If you're changing the engine in your Midas for something different we want to read about it. Every possible conversion and more can be found in here...

I used a special Biaxial polyester woven tissue 450 gr/m, which must give a better torsional stiffness and compressive strength .

I just received my towerbolts .
I have adapted the "side bulkhead-towerbolt" with thread M16 , the threaded M16 rod goes into the original bolt +- 5 cm deep , I lock this with Loctite .
I can now turn the bolt so that the subframe is completely very thight against the bolt and with the other side I can turn now with the right torque .

The subframe fits very good in the engine area and i have a lot of space now to install the suzuki engine .
I made solid custom rear mounts to spread out the forces on the bulkhead which I renforced to more than 12mm thickness .
I can regulate the tension with the adjustable threaded rods so that the towers are in the correct position ,it will take 5 minuites if I need some correction in the future ......
I am doing a renforcement of the side walls which must allow to install solid frontmounts , in that way the engine will be very well catched so that she moves as little as possible .
The only think I worry are the measurements which prove that the inletmanifold could be to big to pass the bulkhead , but next week will give me the only answer :?:
PS The threaded rods which are to long ,will be shorted to the correct length . :)

As espected I have a problem with the inlet manifold suzuki MK3 .
The manfold is too big and hits the bulkhead ,the inlet is +- 20 cm and the distance engine - bulkhead is +- 15 cm , so difference of 5 cm !
If I change the angle from 7 ° to 13° by lifting the rear mount than the manifold passes........... but than the driveshafts become to high and hit the subframe .
A solution would be to lower the engine at rear and front and make the angle 13°, but than the engine is too close to the ground.
I am looking for a MK1 inletmanifold and hope this will solve the problem :?:
I can also use IBT's injection but this is really too expensive https://danstengineering.co.uk/index.ph ... uzuki+g13b

We had the same issue with the VTEC mini, in the end we cut and angled the manifold runners

Yes I thaught also to short and angle the Suzuki MK2 manifold but the manifold would hit the bonnet and correct welding wasn't easy at all
Finally I took a MK1 manifold which has another construction and NO problem anymore to pass the bulkhead , now I have a lot of space !!!
The diameter of the manifold and the gasthrottle of the MK1 is 42 mm instead of 48 mm with the MK2 .
I 'll use the gasthrottle of the MK2 ( 48 mm) and I will make the diameter of the inlet of the MK1 to 48mm .
The threadholes of the inlet MK1 do not match with the threadholes of the MK2 gasthrottle , therefore I will use a flange which takes on on one side the inlet MK1 and
the other side takes the gasthrottle MK2 .
Just looking at the design of the MK1 and the MK2 ,I have the impression I 'll lose some horsepower ( I am not sure ) but the manifold do not hit anymore the bulkhead :D
Also I have to give up the cold start function , the engine will run jerky by a cold start ..... but only for some minuites .

I just found out if I move the gasthrottle to the leftside,than I have place to put the reservoirs of the brake and clutch cylinders on their original place and I don't have to make/buy a pedalbox anymore, which is a lot of time and money saved :D
I will send later some pictures of this
